Unprecedented Times

One Mission Students is concerned about the health of student missionaries. We are committed to the mission that God has given us to make disciples of all nations, and we believe that college students have a unique role to play in that mission. COVID-19 has impacted every area of our lives. We are constantly monitoring the situation in all service locations and hope to have opportunities to send students across the globe as borders begin to open. Will you pray with us for these opportunities? Will you pray that students will be willing to serve as opportunities become available?

One Mission Students Must Be:

  • Maturing Christians
  • Active in an Alabama BCM or Alabama Baptist Church
  • Be of good physical and emotional health
  • Participate in personal evangelism on your college campus
  • Students must refrain from any use of alcohol, tobacco, pornography, sexual contact outside of marriage, and/or any other activity that will call into question your integrity or hinder one’s witness for Christ.
  • Completed one semester of college
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher
  • You must also attend REACH Wknd. It will be offered virtually in April 2021. You will receive more information about this when you are appointed. This weekend will provide you with information about your service opportunity this summer and training in evangelism, safety, and security.
  • You must also complete two report forms as you serve throughout the summer.

From a “Command Center” in America, your team will share the gospel online with hundreds this summer! Partnering with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, different strategies will be developed to find those “searching for Jesus” among unreached peoples and places in the Philippines. You will also have time to reach out to refugees in a nearby city and work with local Baptist associations doing children & youth mission events. Your first stop will be a joint orientation with other Nehemiah Teams. Learning the skills needed to carry out your assignment as well as team building will fill these first few days. Your team will then move into the Nehemiah Teams Training House & set up for the summer. Following your summer of ministry, you will join other Nehemiah Teams for a joint debrief… sharing all God has done over the summer. Participants must attend the entire program from orientation through the end of debrief.

Your task is to become community with refugee families who have lived in the Midwest for up to 20 years while maintaining traditional dress, cooking, and folk Islam practices. The children in this neighborhood are 2nd generation to live in the USA. Few have ever visited Africa. Their English skills are significantly higher quality that their parents. They are obedient to traditions out of respect, but their hearts & minds are becoming Western. their souls are confused, conflicted, and could be ripe for harvest. Part of the training will be to learn & understand shame-honor-based cultures and use Biblical stories in contact of this mentality. Parents tenaciously hold to tradition, many fathers still follow Islamic law and mothers have horror stories of fleeing Somalia, Ethiopia, and Kenya as well as heart-breaking stories of shame assimilating into Western culture and American school systems, while trying to learn English to survive. Spend time prayer walking, tutoring children of all ages using academic skills, crafts, sports & cooking. Early evenings involve drinking tea while sharing & listening to stories with the parents, even late-night meals & celebrations. There may also be some opportunity to build relationships with international students who are spending the summer on various university campuses in mid-Ohio.
